The remaining six home cooks arrive at the acclaimed Los Angeles restaurant Patina at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Chef Gordon Ramsay tells them that they won't be eating in the restaurant; they'll be cooking there.
This time Suzy and Tracy, who won the last Elimination Challenge, will be team captains. Tracy picks Adrien and Jennifer for her Blue Team. She says that she didn't choose Christian because she doesn't want any conflict and wants to be the unquestioned leader of her team.
Suzy selects Ben and gets Christian because he's the last man standing. But she says that she's thrilled to have him for her Red Team, saying that she feels she has the stronger group of cooks.
The contestants must now take over the restaurant for 25 regular customers. They will prepare, plate, and execute two of Patina's appetizers and entrees and try to match the high standards expected at the Michelin-starred establishment. "You guys are in the trenches," Chef Graham Elliot says. "This is culinary warfare."
